The winter storms have been keeping many of our members very busy with electrical infrastructure and equipment repairs, traffic diversions and fallen tree clearing and cleanup resulting from power outages that have affected hundreds of thousands of British Columbians. I’d like to thank members for your hard work and for maintaining safe work practices in these challenging circumstances.

Tax receipts for Union dues paid in 2020 are scheduled to be mailed to your home address in February – please make sure your address is current with your Union, especially if you have moved in the past year. Remember: your employer DOES NOT share this information with your Union. Address change forms are available on-line at your Union website.

The New Year has gotten underway with your Union Executive Board meeting on January 5th by conference call and minutes have now been posted on your Union website. Local 258 IBEW President Dave McMinn has advised that Unit meetings are not being held due to COVID-19 social distancing regulations.

An important reminder to our members working with our outside private power line employers who will be travelling to the USA for work, you are required to contact the Local 258 IBEW Union Hall in advance of your departure to obtain the mandatory documents (a paid-up dues receipt and letter of introduction) that will allow you to work in a different IBEW jurisdiction.
